Well before ambitious neighborhood restaurants were popping up on every corner, this twinkly Adams Morgan destination served farm-to-table fare to discerning diners looking to escape the pomp and circumstance of downtown DC’s expense-account spots. Competition has increased manifold, but Cashion’s continues to hold its own with such dishes as tender roast chicken; house-made tagliatelle with pork belly in a creamy, mushroom-scented sauce; and flaky, beer-battered cod with onion rings. Skip the “for the table” dishes at the top of the menu; snacks such as the Greek-spread sampler and prosciutto-topped rabbit-liver mousse sound better than they taste. One exception: the crispy salt-roasted potatoes with garlic aïoli.

Open: Tuesday through Friday for dinner, Saturday and Sunday for brunch and dinner.

Don’t Miss: Kabocha-squash soup; Maryland porgy with shrimp, capers, olives, and roasted peppers; rib-eye steak with mashed potatoes, collards, and house-made steak sauce; bison burger; chocolate-and-caramel tart.
